JOSE FELIX QUEZADA JOINS WARRIORS BOXING
Press Release: Warriors Boxing has signed Chicago lightweight Jose Felix Quezada (3-0, 2 KOs) to a promotional agreement. The 19-year-old Quezada is a local fan favorite as well as a three-time State Silver Gloves Champion, a three-time Chicago City-Wide Champion, a two-time Regional Silver Gloves Champion, and the 2009 National Junior Golden Gloves Champion.
As a professional, the talented Quezada has stopped two of his three professional opponents.
"Jose Felix has it all," said Leon Margules, President of Warriors Boxing. "He has the fighting talent, the looks and the brains to become a mainstream media star and we're very proud he chose to join our team."
Quezada joins Eddie Ramirez (5-0, 3 KOs) on Warriors' growing list of the Windy City's up-and-coming talent.
"We're making an investment in Chicago and putting together a stable of its best fighters," continued Margules. "When you pair our guys, Jose Felix Quezada and Eddie Ramirez, with Semajay Thomas and Alex Martin, you can put all the top fighters in Chicago on one show, which is what we had July 25th and will again."
"I'm very excited to have signed this kid and looking forward to bringing him back as soon as possible," said Warriors Boxing's Luis DeCubas. "Given his background of half-Mexican and half-Filipino, he's very marketable not only in the Midwest, but also on the West Coast. I'd like to thank Jose's manager, Rick Ramos, for helping put this terrific deal together."
Margules says Quezada's next opponent will be announced shortly, but he will be the type of opponent needed to craft a world champion. "Jose will come up through the ranks the right way: against opponents who push him. I fully expect he'll become nationally known before too long."
